In the recent floods across the U.S. this month 12 people were killed, and 9 of them were men. Apparently, men are more likely than women to die in floods, partly because they are often outside for their jobs and because they are more likely to take stupid risks in bad weather. Lightning is also another "very common" fatal disaster for men (men are often "outside playing or watching sports"...apparently, women never go outside!). [Time]
